RETRO Mid Century Electro Match Table/Desk Lighter Space Age Orb Black WORKS!!!

This auction is for a Retro mid century Electro Match table or desktop lighter. The black space age designed orb has a star base that unscrews to install new batteries.

The lighter measures approximately 5 1/4" tall by 5" wide by 4 1/2" deep. The wand measures 4 1/4" long.
